Biological Effects of Indigenous Medicinal Plant (Apium Graveolens L)

Kalsoom Quershi


The crude Hexane extract of Apium graveolens seeds were screened for their antifungal, antibacterial, insecticidal, antileishmanial and brine shrimp lethality activities. The extracts were tested against six different species of human pathogenic bacteria by using Agar well diffusion method and six fungal strains by agar tube dilution method. The Hexane extract exhibited strong inhibitory activity against animal pathogens Trichphyton longifuss (80%) and Microsporum canis (80%), this extract was found to be devoid of insecticidal, antileishmanial, contact toxicity, antibacterial and brine shrimp lethality activities.
